Come 27th September 2022, Wrath of the Lich King Classic releases in Asia-Pacific. With this release, players will get to relive their memories of WoW in 2008 when the expansion first came out then.
I started playing WoW in Burning Crusade back in 2007, and I was most invested in WoW during Wrath of the Lich King. Being new to MMORPGs and even Warcraft III (Yes yes, I didn’t play Warcraft III) exploring the world of Northrend was an entirely new experience for me. Heck, I didn’t know who Arthas was apart from a similar looking face appearing on the boxed art of Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. Oh, so they’re the same person. Oops.
Fast forward many expansions later, many still regard WoTLK as one of, if not the best expansion to date. Raids felt polished and intense. The community was healthily competitive. Systems in the game made you want to log in to play, unlike the tons of dailies, weeklies and other things we needed to do in the recent expansions. New players are puzzled sometimes when we old players say ‘WoW has changed a lot since Vanilla’. With the introduction of WoW Classic, players will have a taste of how the game was back then.
Players will step into the world of Northrend and be able to level up to 80 before facing the evil foes that lie within. Kel’Thuzad, Yogg-Saron and of course, Arthas himself will be in your kill-list as you explore the iconic raids that till today are still regarded as some of the best and most epic. Players will also be able to explore the Death Knight, WoW’s first hero class that starts from level 55. Definitely was a lot of fun many years ago when I tried it. Macam mini Arthas. Hehe.
Also, with the new Inscription profession and achievement system… wait what? Achievement System? Yes, the achievement system was only introduced in WoTLK! What better time to log into Classic to collect those rewards for your accomplishments!
Warm up those fingers, wear something cold and brace yourselves to face off against one of Warcraft’s most iconic villains, Arthas himself. See you in Northrend!
Enjoys the art of drifting, stealth-based and racing games; the latter 2 he’s not very good at. His laughter puts hyenas to shame.
